UVA Baseball down, but not out

John Casteen isn’t the only thing the Cavaliers lost this weekend. The UVA Baseball team couldn’t quite carry on their streak as they fell to LSU 9-5 on Saturday night. The Cavaliers were up one run going into the bottom of the fifth inning when LSU catcher, Sean Ochinko hit a go-ahead three-run homer.

The game was hyped as a kemosabe-versus-grasshopper grudge match as UVA coach Brian O’Connor is a former assistant of LSU’s Paul Mainieri. Unfortunately for the diamond ‘Hoos, it appears the teacher is still the master. The Cavs’ title hopes will hang in the balance when UVA faces Cal State Fullerton in an elimination game this afternoon. 


UVA coach Brian O’Connor led the Cavaliers to the College World Series. The Cavs will face Cal State Fullerton today.
